Therapeutic Team

The therapeutic team is made up of professionals who are skilled in the treatment of disorders such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress, substance dependency and psychosis.

Our multi-disciplinary team comprises of:

  • Psychiatrists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Physiotherapists
  • Biokineticist
  • Dietician
  • Nursing staff with psychiatric qualifications and experience

Physiotherapists

If patients experience physical pain caused by stress and tension, such as neck or back spasms, their psychiatrist will refer them to a physiotherapist. The physiotherapists will arrange appointments with the patient and will treat them in their rooms or at the physiotherapist’s room at offices@bloemcare.

Psychologists & Psychiatrists

Patients are referred to Bloemcare by a psychiatrist who will treat them while they are in the clinic. This enables the psychiatrist to closely monitor the patient’s medication and state of mind and make appropriate adjustments and recommendations. Patients will also see a psychologist while in Bloemcare. The patient will be referred by their psychiatrist to a psychologist if they have not been counselled by a psychologist prior to their stay in Bloemcare.

Biokineticist

A qualified biokineticist offers training sessions in the Bloemcare gym from Mondays to Fridays, between 07h30 and 08h00. Patients can be referred to a biokineticist to assist them with an exercise programme for specific needs, e.g. stress-related backache.

Dieticians

Patients with special dietary needs, e.g. low cholesterol, can be referred to a dietician. Appropriate special meals will be served for these patients during their stay at Bloemcare.

Occupational therapists

A team of occupational therapists co-ordinate the group therapy programme at Bloemcare.
